In the congress of International Primatological Society in Edinburgh, I presented about MHC-DRB polymorphism in captive Japanese macaques in the Primate Research Institute of Kyoto University.
After the congress, I visited the University of Cambridge to discuss about the detail results of the study of MHC-DRB in Japanese macaques, and talked about another research, which related to conservation genetics in captive managements.
I visited Port Lympne Wild Animal Park in Kent to observe playing behaviours in captive western lowland gorillas.
